San Francisco 49ers
DST - SF
Per sources, the San Francisco 49ers have narrowed their options down to Alabama QB Mac Jones and North Dakota State QB Trey Lance with the Number 3 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
There’s been a ton of chatter on who the 49ers would take after trading up to get the 3rd overall pick in the Draft, but now it seems like the choice is between Jones and Lance, and not Ohio State QB Justin Fields. Jones has always been the betting favorite, but it sounds like there’s at least some chance they decide to go with Lance at Number 3. Of course the sources could be off base and this could be a smoke screen, but it sounds like the 49ers have narrowed it down to just two quarterbacks at this juncture.
Adam Schefter is reporting that the San Franscisco 49ers have traded the 12th pick, a 2021 third-round pick, and first-round picks in 2022 and 2023 to the Miami Dolphins for the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Schefter followed up his initial tweet saying that the 49ers have no plans to trade away quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and do not have a specific player in mind with the third pick. Considering the haul that they gave away to move up, that seems unlikely and they are most likely attempting to keep their cards hidden. With Trevor Lawrence expected to go to the Jaguars with the first pick, that leaves Zach Wilson, Trey Lance, and Justin Fields available as the top-three quarterbacks on the board with the Jets selecting right before the 49ers.
The San Francisco D/ST had two sacks, two fumble recoveries, two interceptions, and a touchdown in Week 12's win over the Rams.
The San Francisco D/ST continues to be a formidable one this season, even with the loss of some key players to injury. Richard Sherman's return has been a big boost to a D/ST that ranks inside the top-12 in fantasy scoring this year. With matchups against the Football Team and Cowboys in the fantasy playoffs, they should remain toward the top and must be started.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the 49ers shut down their facility Wednesday due to a positive COVID-19 test.
It’s concerning considering the team is supposed to play tomorrow night (Thursday) against the Packers. We’ll have to wait and see what the league has to say about this game being played this week.
The 49ers' D/ST forced one turnover and held the Rams' dynamic offense to only 16 points during their 24-16 win in Week 6.
This was a disappointing showing for fantasy managers, as the 49ers' played a better real life game than in fantasy. Although, they only forced one turnover and failed to sack Jared Goff once, they rarely allowed a Rams' receiver to find any sort of breathing room outside of Josh Reynolds 40-yard touchdown late in the game. This banged up 49ers' defense projects to be a middling option against the Patriots in Week 7.
